Historic Baltimore

Most everywhere you turn in Baltimore, you take in a piece of the city’s history. Indeed the city has nearly 70,000 properties listed in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) and almost seventy National Register Historic Districts.

It’s also punctuated with all kinds of monuments. Already in 1827 during a visit to Baltimore by President John Quincy Adams, Baltimore acquired the moniker of The Monumental City. Battle Monument remains one of the best known of these commemorations. You can see this official emblem of the City of Baltimore on North Calvert Street between East Fayette and East Lexington Streets. It commemorates the Battle of Baltimore, which took place during the War of 1812. The resistance put forth by the Continental Navy against the English during that bombardment inspired Francis Scott Key to compose the poem that later served as the lyrics for “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the national anthem of the United States of America. Baltimore, in fact, has more public monuments and statues than any other state in the U.S.
